Did he do it again.....?

Did anyone else see this? I had to work Super Bowl Sunday, so I had to tape the show....my tape didn't turn out, so I had to borrow someone's copy...and as a result, I am the last U2 fan on the earth to see the halftime show. BUT ANYWAY.......during Streets..when he was running around the heart....he approaches the tip, people are throwing things at him....one just misses his head as he stops.....and it looks for all the world (to me at least) like he stops and shoots them the bird! (again) I rewound it twice, and although it was fuzzy, that's sure what it looked like! Although it did look like the "American" bird, as opposed to the "Euro" bird he displayed in the Boston vid. Did anyone else see it or am I mad? Go check the tape again and see if you see it too!

Actually, I remember seeing things being thrown at him but I can't recall if he flipped them anything. I remember because I was checking to see his reaction. How stupid of people to throw things at him. Anyway, I remember he dodged it, and just kept going.

Poor old Bono! If there was a Olympic sport for Dodging Missiles On Stage, our man would be world champion, no contest!

Duh..the "euro" bird is flipping 2 fingers backhanded (like an inverse peace sign)...whereas the American bird is a single finger(the middle one). I can't reember which song it is, but someone throws a cup or something at him and he sticks up the two fingers which constitute that gesture.

Yep.. Angell's right. It's during Sunday Bloody Sunday, a minute into the beginning, and Bono has his eyes closed and he is kind of just dancing to the music and he narrowly ducks the beer can or pop can or whatever it is. Mr. LeMon had a thread with the screencaptures from that part of the DVD, I THINK posted in PLEBA.

"Very strange looking object you have at the end of your stick.." - Bono

"Bono looks too intense for me." - Rollercoaster Tycoon park guest

"I was drunk, high on him, a shrinking, shadowboxing dwarf following in his foosteps...badly...STARSTRUCK.." - Bono, on meeting Frank Sinatra for the first time

"Bono? Bono is going to tie ropes around my neck? Wait a minute.." - Edge, when shooting the 'Numb' video
